Based on observations in 5 cases, the authors believe that it does not appear proven that there is a permanent deficit in the 5 HT content of the CSF in spite of the constant finding in the 5 cases of a tendency to a reduction in the 5 HIAA content of the CSF during attacks. These findings are contrary to those reported recently by other authors, and caution is advised in acceptance of the results until further data becomes available.
